Ski Helmets : Question and Answer

 

Q:

What is the best ski helmet for racing?

A:

The best ski helmet for racing will have a full shell construction as opposed to a half shell construction with earflaps. Uvex and Carrera are two of the biggest brands and examples of other popular brands include POC, Giro and Shred. POC helmets carry a shocking price tag for normal consumers, but most racers can find steep discounts if they go through certain retail channels. All racing helmets will comply with ASTM F2040 and/or CE EN1077 safety standards, so the best ski racing helmet for you really just depends on which helmets best fit your head size and shape and feel the most comfortable.
